Realty Check: What Your Money Will Buy

Find out how much you have to fork over to buy one of Southwest Florida's fanciest homes.



Southwest Florida is home to some of the nicest real estate in the country. Thinking about buying  a slice of paradise? Find out here how much you'll have to hand over to be able to afford the toniest homes in the area.

 

$6.5 Million

An international CEO of a “major corporation” purchased the 330 18th Ave. S. Aqualane Shores estate for $6.5 million in January, adding to the “numerous homes they have worldwide,” says James E. Forrest, real estate consultant with The Forrest Co. Realty of Naples Inc., who listed and sold the 6,624-square-foot property. The award-winning custom build features four bedrooms and an office, five full bathrooms and one-half bathroom, along with a number of spacious areas for entertaining. Sleek wood floors warm up the coastal-chic interior, while white-framed windows offer broad, island-like views. “[The home] has an exceptional wide water view with southern exposure on Aqua Cove,” Forrest says. “It’s a special location.” A dramatic infinity-edge pool and spa complement the two-story dwelling, and a 44-foot boat slip with room for 50-foot boat dockage adds to the outdoor offerings. The new homeowners have a number of entertainment options nearby. “Both the seller and the buyers appreciated the singular, A-plus ‘sweet spot’ location, close to the beach and the bistros of Third Street South,” Forrest says.

 

$3.9 Million

European investors purchased the Naples waterfront home at 590 17th Ave. S. for $3.9 million. “[The buyers] appreciated its location, character and charm,” says Lisa Tashjian, a Premier Sotheby’s International Realty agent who represented the sellers. Built in 2006 and designed by Simonsen-Hickok Interiors, the estate offers 5,817 square feet of living space, six bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms, formal living and dining rooms, a newly renovated eat-in kitchen with adjoining family room, plus an office with custom accents. The second floor holds a media loft and technology center, and an upper balcony facing the waterway. The home is elegantly constructed with high ceilings, marble floors and a “beautiful mural that wraps the staircase; an artful, hand-painted design that graces the dining room ceiling; and a pool area that’s hidden from the canal by a lush, ficus hedge,” Tashjian says. “It reminds me of Provence.” The exterior also features a 70-foot boat dock and direct Gulf access.

 

$1.8 Millions

Miromar Lakes in Estero is one of those amenity-rich communities that residents never want to leave, says Jennifer Springer Rinden, Realtor and broker associate with Orchid Realty Group at Keller Williams Elite. That was certainly the case for the couple who purchased the home at 18000 Via Bellamare Lane in January, which is located on the same street as their former Miromar Lakes home. Lots of unique features drew buyers to the 5,289-square-foot, three-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom estate, such as a kitchen with three dishwashers and two fully operating ovens, a deep-set four-car garage and a large “bonus” room upstairs. “I actually consider it kind of a man cave,” says Springer Rinden, who listed the property. “There’s a pool table and it overlooks the water with an open balcony and fireplace. It’s very conducive to entertaining.” A seamless transition is made from indoors to out with fully opening, 90-degree sliders, a cage-less lanai and professionally maintained landscaping.
